LATRELL SPREWELL INTERVIEW

This is a quick, older interview, recorded last season while Spree was on the road in Los Angeles, but the questions are timeless. Between INSIDE HOOPS' Jeff Lenchiner and the Knicks' Latrell Sprewell.
 

Jeff: Latrell, who were your favorite players when you were a kid? 

Latrell: (enthusiastically) Jordan... Jordan, Bird, Magic, Worthy... Dr.J... and from Milwaukee, you probably don't remember this guy - Brian Winters. He was a shooter. 

Jeff: Any specific moves you tried to steal from people back then? 

Latrell: No, just Jordan - everyone wanted to do the hang-time thing, the up-and-under (does the motion with his hands) and things like that. 

Jeff: And how much did you play as a kid, and how much did you dream about making it? 

Latrell: I played a lot... I played a lot. I'm living out a childhood dream right now, so it's fun. 

Jeff: When you were young, at what point did you figure out that you were better than the average ball-player? 

Latrell: I think probably after my sophomore year of high school... 

Jeff: What happened? 

Latrell: I just started to grow, and some of the guys that were considered to be pretty good, I could compete with those guys. 

Jeff: So the skills went up right around the time the growth went up... no growing pains... 

Latrell: Exactly. 

Jeff: And since this is for InsideHoops.com - the web, do you ever actually go on the internet? 

Latrell: All the the time! 

Jeff: Cool, and what do you do? 

Latrell: I'm usually on there playing Unreal Tournament.
